Print Craving
Posted by on April 11, 2012 | 11:02 am EST

To say that seeing designers’ spring collections did not draw a smile on the perfectly chiseled face of the fashion world is a ludicrous lie. From the bursting bubblegum colors to the seductively short garments of the spring season, we’re pretty sure there is that one trend that everyone zeroed in on.

Here at Fashion Glamour, it was the battalion of statement-making prints that won us over. May it be the pretty florals from Peter Som, the zigzags of Carven or the geometric adventures of Proenza Schouler, there were more than enough to keep spring dressing vivid and busy.

Altuzarra | Finch tropical-print cotton-blend blazer | $1,760

Three words: bold, bright and busy. This vivid cotton-blend blazer from Altuzarra delivered a knockout blow to the eyes that is irresistibly spring-perfect. With all the colors and prints speaking loudly on this piece, team it with an all-black ensemble for a perfectly polished finish.

Emilio Pucci | Off-the-shoulder printed stretch-jersey dress | $1,695

Not one to be missed in the print bandwagon, this standout stretch-jersey dress from Emilio Pucci is one of the most fabulous dresses to emerge from the fashion house. The off-the-shoulder detail combined with the figure-hugging silhouette lends a sophistication ideal for posh evening soirees. We also adore the jewel-like quality of the prints.

Peter Pilotto | Printed jersey top | $495

Digital prints also hogged the spotlight during Peter Pilotto’s spring runway show.  This printed jersey top features shades of blue, yellow, black and white—converging to create a sleek and sporty piece.

Paul & Joe | Galicie printed silk top | $465

This picture-perfect floral silk top from Paul & Joe captured the beauty of spring with its golden yellow shade and dainty pink flowers in full bloom. Pair this elegant top with denim shorts on casual days or a sophisticated pencil skirt on dressier occasions.

Prabal Gurung | Printed wool and silk-blend shorts | $895

The stunning floral prints on these Prabal Gurung silk-blend shorts require a quick intake of breath just for its superbly majestic quality. The dreamy violets and purples seemingly painted on this pair is the perfect pair to wear with a sharp blazer for an uptown chicness like no other.

Goldsign | Virtual printed cropped high-rise skinny jeans | $225

Flowers festooned this pair of high-rise skinny jeans from Goldsign, reminding us that the spring-and-floral tandem is hard—if not impossible—to beat. The pastel color palette kept this pair soft, feminine and wearable. Wear this with a sleek white blouse for no-fuss dressing or a canary yellow top for a louder statement.

Carven | Printed jacquard platform sandals | $800

Sometimes, all a woman needs is a pair of striking shoes. These platform sandals—and its 6-inch heels—will take you to new heights this spring, with its playful collision of pink, white and blue. For maximum impact, ditch the pants and wear this with shorts or skirts.

Miu Miu | Printed cotton-canvas mini bucket bag | $895

Miu Miu charmed its way into our hearts with this mini bucket bag adorned with paisley, elephant and sphinx prints. Girly girls will love the distinctly oriental appeal it offers aside from its adorable bucket shape.
